Irregular Choice is a fashion brand which was founded in Brighton in 1999. They specialise in quirky footwear, bags and accessories that are sold all over the world.
Now they will be celebrating and holding an Irregular Day! Irregular Day is all about trying something new, or something that is irregular to you, and celebrating all that is irregular! The event is mainly about getting the community together to celebrate being irregular.
There will also be a children's shoe design competition where children can design a shoe and go in the draw to win a goodie bag.
Some of the irregular items above will be free to customers and there will also be free treats throughout the day. Organisers like the element of surprise, so to find out exactly what you will get here, you will have to attend the event - it is sure to be heaps of fun, and it is not often that you get freebies nowadays!
The Melbourne store will be holding irregular events to celebrate irregularity, and everyone is invited to attend and take part in irregular fun, and eat irregular food.
The event will be held on Saturday 9th March 2019, from 10.00 am to 6.00 pm at Irregular Choice Australasia, 161 Swanston Street, Melbourne.
The ethos of the brand is all about standing out from the crowd and being unique! They want to celebrate being different and unique and challenge everyone to come along and do something you would not generally do. Perhaps you have not had the courage or motivation to do these things before.
Even the staff of the firm, stockists and factory workers will be getting involved - they will have people going sky diving, dying their hair, dressing up, cooking irregular foods or trying their hand at a different skill like knitting. One staff member will allow her 7-year-old daughter to choose her mum's outfit for her, for the week leading up to Irregular day.
Organisers would like you to be part of Irregular Day wherever you are, and you don't even have to attend an event to get involved! You can share your Irregular Day with them via the hashtag #irregularday, and you will be part of something special!
Irregular Day is held to help raise money for Bully Zero, a charity that aims to eliminate bullying in workplaces and schools. They are therefore asking for a gold coin donation in return for the free surprises that you will get at this unusual event.
Bully Zero is a registered not for profit organisation. They deliver educational programs that both inform and empower everyone to put an end to bullying.
The people involved in the forming of this company included senior members of the police force, volunteers, psychologists, lawyers, teachers, politicians and the families of bullying victims.
Before Bully Zero was founded in 2009, Ali Halkic's son, Allem, was a tragic victim to cyber-bullying. Ali was determined that he did not want this happening to any other children, so he successfully lobbied the Victorian State Government to erect barriers along the Westgate Bridge. This prevented hundreds of suicides as a result.
Their vision is to continue providing one-of-a-kind programs to schools and workplaces to lessen and stop bullying.
Come and visit the irregular shop and take part in their "irregular shinanigans." Irregular Day is also suitable for children, so do bring them along, as well as your friends! Help stamp out bullying and know that what you spend will partly go towards this.
Embrace irregularity and have a whole lot of fun - which is what this day is all about!
